Best product line

The Handmade Soap Company

From humble beginnings in a pot on a stove in Slane, Co Meath, The Handmade Soap Company now comprises more than seventy carefully conceived natural beauty products. Founders Donagh Quigley and Gemma McGowan have succeeded in growing an international brand footprint by staying true to their core beliefs; transparency, sustainability and the creation of effective products that literally do not cost the earth. Far more than soap-makers, The Handmade Soap Company product line spans natural deodorant to hand cream and room mists, with a scent collection inspired by wildflowers exemplifying the brand’s consistent knack to delight. Admirable, too, is the company’s charitable outlook, with the Native Woodland Trust and the mental health charity Aware two recent beneficiaries of The Handmade Soap Company’s continued success.
